The Chefs’ Warehouse Reports Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Chefs’ Warehouse, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHEF), a premier distributor of specialty food products in the United States and Canada, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 29, 2017.

Financial highlights for the third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016:

  • Net sales increased 9.1% to $325.1 million for the third quarter of 2017 from $297.9 million for the third quarter of 2016.
  • GAAP net income was $2.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2017 compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Modified pro forma net income per diluted share was $0.11 for the third quarter of 2017 compared to modified pro forma earnings per diluted share $0.07 for the third quarter of 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $16.4 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $14.6 million for the third quarter of 2016.

“We continued our positive momentum in the third quarter, despite a number of challenging headwinds. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who were impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We are honored to have contributed food, water and man power in the relief efforts and are proud to support and assist those in need where possible,” said Chris Pappas, chairman and chief executive officer of The Chefs' Warehouse, Inc. “We are experiencing continued headwinds in the fourth quarter with the tragedy in Las Vegas as well as the devastating fires in Northern California. However, the majority of our customer base remains healthy during this challenging consumer environment.”

“We are pleased to have added the Fells Point team and their expertise in specialty protein and artisanal protein manufacturing to our Chefs' Warehouse family toward the end of the quarter, strengthening our protein presence on the East Coast,” concluded Pappas.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results

Net sales for the quarter ended September 29, 2017 increased 9.1% to $325.1 million from $297.9 million for the quarter ended September 23, 2016. Organic growth contributed $21.3 million, or 7.2% to sales growth in the quarter. The remaining sales growth of $5.8 million, or 1.9% resulted from the acquisition of Fells Point Wholesale Meats Inc. on August 25, 2017. Organic case count grew approximately 3.6% in our specialty division, which net of the expected attrition from our Chicago fold-in acquisition was 5.2%. In addition, growth in unique customers and placements grew 4.4% and 5.4%, respectively, compared to the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the Fells Point acquisition, pounds sold in our protein division declined 1.2% compared to the prior year quarter, impacted in part by the impact of both hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Estimated inflation continued its sequential increase and was 5.3% and 5.1% in our specialty and protein divisions, respectively, compared to the prior year quarter.

Gross profit increased approximately 8.8% to $80.9 million for the third quarter of 2017 from $74.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. Gross profit margin decreased approximately 8 basis points to 24.9% from 25.0%, due in large part to the impact of inflation. Gross margins in the Company's specialty division decreased 12 basis points and decreased 3 basis points in the Company's protein division compared to the prior year quarter.

Total operating expenses increased by approximately 6.5% to $70.4 million for the third quarter of 2017 from $66.1 million for the third quarter of 2016. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 21.7% in the third quarter of 2017 compared to 22.2% in the third quarter of 2016. The decrease in the Company’s operating expense ratio is due largely to better utilization of the Company's warehouse facilities, lower warehouse and selling labor costs as a percent of sales, and lower depreciation and amortization expense, offset in part by higher compensation costs related to the Company's management infrastructure.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2017 was $10.5 million compared to $8.3 million for the third quarter of 2016. The increase in operating income was driven primarily by increased gross profit, offset in part by higher operating expenses, as discussed above. As a percentage of net sales, operating income was 3.2% in the third quarter of 2017 compared to 2.8% in the third quarter of 2016.

Total interest expense decreased to $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $5.9 million for the third quarter of 2016 due primarily to a reduction in interest rates charged on the Company's outstanding debt.

Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA1 was $16.4 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $14.6 million for the third quarter of 2016. For the third quarter of 2017, modified pro forma net income1 was $2.9 million and modified pro forma EPS1 was $0.11 compared to modified pro forma net income of $1.7 million and modified pro forma EPS of $0.07 for the third quarter of 2016.

Full Year 2017 Guidance
Based on current trends in the business, the Company is providing the following updated financial guidance for fiscal year 2017:

  • Net sales between $1.29 billion and $1.30 billion
  • Gross profit between $327.0 million and $330.0 million
  • Net income between $10.0 million and $10.8 million
  • Net income per diluted share between $0.38 and $0.41
  • Adjusted EBITDA between $64.5 million and $66.5 million
  • Modified pro forma net income per diluted share between $0.39 and $0.43

This guidance is based on an effective tax rate of approximately 41.6% and fully diluted shares of approximately 26.2 million shares. Note that the Company does not expect the outstanding convertible notes to be dilutive and accordingly, those convertible shares are not included in the fully diluted share count.

The risks and uncertainties which could impact these statements include, but are not limited to, the Company's ability to successfully deploy its operational initiatives to achieve synergies from the acquisition of the Del Monte entities; the Company's sensitivity to general economic conditions, including the current economic environment, changes in disposable income levels and consumer discretionary spending on food-away-from-home purchases; the Company's vulnerability to economic and other developments in the geographic markets in which it operates; the risks of supply chain interruptions due to a lack of long-term contracts, severe weather or more prolonged climate change, work stoppages or otherwise; the risk of loss of customers due to the fact that the Company does not customarily have long-term contracts with its customers; the risks of loss of revenue or reductions in operating margins in the Company’s protein business as a result of competitive pressures within this segment of the Company’s business; changes in the availability or cost of the Company's specialty food products; the ability to effectively price the Company's specialty food products and reduce the Company's expenses; the relatively low margins of the foodservice distribution industry and the Company's and its customers' sensitivity to inflationary and deflationary pressures; the Company's ability to successfully identify, obtain financing for and complete acquisitions of other foodservice distributors and to integrate and realize expected synergies from those acquisitions; the Company's ability to service customers from its new Chicago, San Francisco and Las Vegas distribution centers and the expenses associated therewith; increased fuel cost volatility and expectations regarding the use of fuel surcharges; fluctuations in the wholesale prices of beef, poultry and seafood, including increases in these prices as a result of increases in the cost of feeding and caring for livestock; the loss of key members of the Company's management team and the Company's ability to replace such personnel; and the strain on the Company's infrastructure and resources caused by its growth. Any forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and, as such, speak only as of the date made. A more detailed description of these and other risk factors is contained in the Company's most recent annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 10, 2017 and other reports filed by the Company with the SEC since that date.

The use of modified pro forma EPS as a performance measure permits a comparative assessment of our expectations regarding our estimated operating performance relative to our estimated operating performance based on our GAAP results while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies.
